Call for Applications - Carl Friedrich Goerdeler Kolleg for Good Governance 2014-2015

Venues: Berlin, Warsaw and Brussels
Period: 2014 - 2015
Application deadline: March 3, 2014


The Goerdeler Kolleg for Good Governance provides professional training in the field of good governance to a new generation of executives from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine. In doing so, it aims to foster responsible action in the public sector (public administration and non-profit organizations) as well as in business. The Kolleg enables you to gain further qualification in seminars and actively participate in discussions and project workshops, establish contacts in Germany, the EU and participants’ countries, and contribute to the development of good governance and administrative reforms.

The program is comprised of a three-week seminar in Berlin and Warsaw from August 30 to September 20, 2014, project implementation in your home country from October 2014 to August 2015, a mid-term seminar in Brussels in March 2015, and a concluding seminar in Berlin in August 2015.

The Kolleg will enable you to:

  • take active part in seminars, discussions and workshops to extend your professional knowledge and skills
  • build up your network of contacts in Germany, the EU, and all participating countries, and
  • make a contribution to the development of good governance in public administration, business, and civil society.

The year-long program consists of the following units:

  • a three-week seminar (August 30–September 20, 2014)
  • a project phase in your home country in which you implement your own plans for a project (October 2014–August 2015)
  • a mid-year seminar (four days in March 2015)
  • a concluding seminar (three days in August / September 2015)

Participants will receive additional training and certification in the areas of administration modernization and good governance. They will also learn how good governance is practiced in administration, business, and civil society by means of practical examples in Germany and the EU. They will receive exclusive glimpses into political life and have an opportunity to make new contacts and extend their networks. Finally, participants develop their own idea for a project with reference to their home institution, receive training as project managers, and initiate their projects in the course of their year at the Kolleg.


The following is required of all applicants:

citizenship of one of the following countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia, Turkey, or Ukraine
residency in one of these countries
a university degree, with proof of outstanding academic performance
